lladybird for spring 2011: a sneak peek

11 Mar

life got majorly busy and i haven’t been sewing much as of lately. and by “sewing,” i mean “sewing for myself” – i’ve been working up a frenzy in preparation for nashville fashion week. not because i have anything to do with *that* event, but local honey is throwing their annual spring premier the same weekend. so yay, spring clothes!!

i’ve been working on some new designs & some new color scenes… playing around with more details this time around, especially ruffles & pintucking & bias stripes. i’m still working the colorblocks… i tried to pull away from it, but i can’t help it, i love colorblocking too much! there are a few “classic” lladybird dresses in the mix, but i’ll also be introducing some half-circle skirts dresses. fun!

here is a sneak peek at what i’ve been cooking up:

color palette
my color palette… kind of. i tried to keep it to 3-4 colors but as you can see, i love color too much. does it count that most of them as just different shades of themselves?

sewing room table :3 probably won’t end up using all those fabrics, i just like having them area for inspiration!

    Ooo! Those pieces all look so fun. I love the colors. I’m with you on liking to have your fabric stash out where you can see everything. I too, work best and find inspiration this way.

    that is a seriously tantalizing sneak peek! I love color too, and I love the ones you chose.
